Facts to support the highly ranked KC OL

2

- The Chiefs have not allowed a sack in three straight games. The last time Kansas City’s offense achieved this feat was from Dec. 4-17, 2000. - Through seven weeks, the Chiefs are third in the NFL with 164.0 rushing yards per game, trailing only the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers.

Scouting Barkley

in the comments: "My favorite team for Barkley is KC. I really like their offensive line. Charles lead a strong running game. They have four pretty good WRs, with a true number one in Bowe. IMO, this is the type of team Barkley can succeed with ".

Re-Focused KC vs TAM

"- So what do you do with the 3-4 outside linebacker who’s most productive pass rusher at his position? Well if you’re the Chiefs and have Justin Houston, in this game, you rush him nine times and drop him into coverage 20." "It’s not often you see a 3-4 defensive end getting driven five full yards off the line of scrimmage but that’s exactly what he does to Ropati Pitoitua with 4:34 left in the first." "Ryan Lilja (+2.2) had to move from left guard to center in week 3 and hasn’t just coped, he’s excelled. Here he was perfect in pass protection, never gave up a penalty and did some solid work blocking for the run." " Brady Quinn’s (-2.9) display was significantly worse than anything Cassel served up this year and was particularly poor considering he had such good protection. Only a couple of hits and five hurries could be pinned on his colleagues and he was only pressured on 10 of 30 drop-backs." "Under pressure he managed only four completions for 27 yards and an interception but it was his work against the blitz that set a new benchmark for futility; he managed a QB rating of zero. "

Walter has KC taking Wilson

Kansas City Chiefs: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas It's pretty evident that the Chiefs will need to admit they were wrong and move on from Matt Cassel. I'm sorry, Eric Winston, but he's just too limited to command a winning team in today's pass-happy NFL, and he's become a turnover machine in the wake of Charlie Weis' departure. The fans obviously know it too based on the reaction they supposedly had when he suffered a concussion. Kansas City has to take a quarterback; in fact, the front office may have to trade up to acquire one.

Let's not get too ahead of ourselves. Well it seems like everywhere in KC people are wanting Cassel benched and Pioli fired. This is all because we are 1-3 right? As i seem to recall last year at this same time we were hearing the same complaints and grumbles from fans around KC. But from that we went on a four game winning streak and at least this year we have been blown out by teams that are pretty good teams( maybe not Buffalo). So before we get so die hard about change we should realize that its only been four games and this is the tough part of our schedule.Let's see what happens in the next month. At least this year we still have Charles and Berry.

Good Perspective from AA

13

The benching of Matt Cassel, which is almost certainly coming, signifies more than just a change at QB. It signifies the end of an era of Chiefs football. It will mean the Chiefs realize that Cassel isn’t ever going to be the answer and it also means they are aware that all hope for 2012 is lost. Quinn being on the field means the Chiefs are content to stumble through the rest of the season, acknowledging their failed Cassel experiment. The losing will continue and depending on how bad Quinn is, we may even see a little of Ricky Stanzi before all is said and done. When the dust settles, the Chiefs will have likely secured a high draft pick. They’ll also have proven that they don’t have a viable NFL QB option on their roster. Sure as we’re sitting here, those days are almost certainly coming. Cassel on the bench, Quinn and maybe even Stanzi. And a lot more losing. We’re like to see it all. But there are 12 games left to be played. We’ve got a long, long way to go. I don’t know about you but I am in no hurry to usher in the Brady Quinn, sucking-for-a-high-Draft-pick era.

Fire the coach bench the QB!

15

QB threw 5 INTs, team lost by 16 points Game was only that close because of "garbage time" Interim HC, brought back as a full time HC, only 1 playoff win since 1996 Full of talent, tends to underachieve Overbearing GM, many have asked him to step down. Sound familiar?

Cordell @ the Film Room on Pioli

16

" Yes, Scott Pioli has made mistakes. But since 2009 none of his mistakes are close to fireable offenses. In 2013 with one pick at the QB position, nearly all of his mistakes are erased. Given the make-up of the roster I'm willing to see if he is ready to move on. Until then, I won't back down from the idea that Pioli is the right GM for this job in Kansas City."

A look at the numbers

17

* SD rushed for 104 yards, 3.1YPC * KC rushed for 119 yards, 5.4 YPC * SD was 3/12 on 3rd down, 25% * KC was 4/10, 40% * Gates was their leading receiver, 3 catches for 59 yards * Charles had 115 total yards, 2 TDs * Bowe had 108yds and a TD * KC sacked SD 3 times, SD sacked KC 2 times * KC forced 5 SD punts, KC punted 4 times

PFF's Refocus on Chiefs vs Saints

11

"Jon Asamoah (+5.5) and Ryan Lilja (+4.0), filling in at center for much of the game, dominated the Saints’ front seven. The downfield blocking wasn’t too bad either: late in the third quarter, wide receiver Terrance Copper put a big-time block on Roman Harper that sealed him inside, and allowed Charles to turn the corner for a 40-yard gain." "While Charles was the man on offense, Justin Houston (+5.1) stole the show on the Kansas City defense, producing one of the most complete performances you will see from an outside linebacker in a base 3-4 defense." "Though he made some key throws late in the game, Matt Cassel (-2.0) put on what was otherwise a very poor display for the second week in a row. With a clean pocket for most of the afternoon, pressured on just 9 of his 47 pass attempts, you’d think Cassel would have shredded a New Orleans defense that has been one of the league’s worst. Instead the Kansas City QB missed on far too many passes that a player of Cassel’s experience should make."

Walter's Mock

10. Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia It's pretty evident that the Chiefs will need to admit they were wrong and move on from Matt Cassel. He's just too limited to command a winning team in today's pass-happy NFL. Kansas City may fall in love with the impressive Geno Smith; in fact, the front office may have to trade up to acquire him if he keeps dominating.

2009 Scouting report on Darius Butler

1

Adam Caplan reported via Twitter that KC worked out DBs: Darius Butler, Frank Walker and Derrick Martin last week.. I found this old scouting report on Butler coming out of college... "Strengths: Good height and athletic build with room to bulk a little in the weight room ... Very instinctive; reads and reacts without hesitation ... Very fluid hips; nice body control ... Has the recovery speed and initial acceleration you look for; no questions athletically ... Competitive and plays with a swagger ... Anticipates routes in press man coverage ... Physical and can play bump-and-run ... Smart ... Three-year starter and has experience ... Solid work ethic ... Will be a better pro than college player ... Outstanding Senior Bowl week in Mobile ... Lots of undiscovered potential. " "Player Comparison: Asante Samuel. Same build. Similar skill set, but Samuel has better ball skills, which Butler can improve."

AA on "Secondary Concerns"

5

"Lost amid the lopsided score were the facts Kansas City was better at converting third downs and outgained the Falcons in yardage. Four plays – the three turnovers and a 77-yard Rodgers kick return – were what decided the game."

24

For those concerned that Pioli didn't do enough for CB depth... look at some of the other defenses' 4th-6th CBs: Patriots: Sterling Moore, Marquice Cole Packers: Brendian Ross, Casey Hayward 49ers: Chris Culliver, Tramaine Brock Ravens: Asa Jackson, Chykie Brown PLEASE let me know who on that list is super impressive, because I haven’t heard of most of them Defenses struggle when the bottom-of-the depth chart DBs face Pro Bowl-Calibur WRs... I would go so far as to say those teams would struggle if they were missing 2 starters in their Defensive backfields, and were starting the names above.

Notes on KC's recent visitor, Bobby Carpenter

8

h/t to Arrowhead Addict "A former bust out of Ohio State, Carpenter re-invented himself in the league with the Patriots and found his niche as a top coverage linebacker in sub packages. He provides a lot of veteran value to a team who needs an LB with exceptional coverage skills" "To me, Carpenter was one of the most surprising cuts that the Pats made. He has great leadership ability and offers value in special teams, and he is better than guys like Tracy White and Mike Rivera. It was a surprising cut to see, and he definitely has a spot on another NFL roster with his coverage ability. Carpenter is one of the most unique players in the league today, and it’s tough that the average fan can’t see past the "bust" label and look at his body of work in one of the most underrated aspects of the game; coverage as pertaining to a linebacker"

League, union have different cap numbers

"The biggest gap comes in Kansas City. The NFLPA numbers show that the Chiefs have $26.6 million in space. The league has the Chiefs at nearly $16.4 million."

Going to be an interesting couple of days...

"Wouldn't shock if any of these guys were cut Friday: Tim Hightower, Aaron Curry, Darryl Tapp, Roberto Wallace, Delone Carter, Josh Johnson." -EvanSilva on Twitter

Watching the waiver wire...

3

"The #Buccaneers are expected to waive SS Larry Asante, a source confirmed. The Bucs are loaded at safety, which made him expendable. However, Asante is well-liked in the scouting community, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he was claimed off waivers. If the Bucs waive Asante today, he could be with a new team tomorrow."
